Lecture by Professor Roger Matthews of the Institute for Archaeology at University College London, "Project Paphlagonia: A Multi-Period Archaeological Survey in North-Central Turkey." 5:30 pm, Room 103 Carr Building (click for map), Duke University, East Campus.
Professor Matthews shares the Kershaw Lectureship in Near East Archaeology for 2008/2009. In 1994, Normal and Reuben Kershaw established the Kershaw Lectures in Near East Archaeology with a significant endowment gift to the AIA from the Kershaw Family Trust. The lectures pay tribute to Norma, AIA Trustee Emerita and long time supporter of the AIA at all levels, and her interest in Near East archaeology. The Kershaw Lectures deal with archaeological research related to the geographic areas of the present countries of Cyprus, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and Turkey during the time between 7000 B.C. and 400 A.
